How to banish post-gym sweaty hair
There are a lot of great benefits to working out, but one downside is dealing with the sweaty hair that comes with smashing through a workout at the gym. Whether you prefer a morning session or a lunchtime gym quickie, sometimes it seems that no matter how many gym hairstyles you try, the result is always a greasy, wet mess.
But don’t give up your workout of choice in a bid to keep your locks fresh – you just need the best hair products for sweaty hair and the right gym hairstyles to keep your mane in check. Luckily, we’ve got your back.
Make sure you’ve got the right hair products for sweaty hair
The crown jewel in your anti-sweat hair kit? A great-smelling, oil-banishing dry shampoo. A dry shampoo will simultaneously soak up all the sweat from your workout and leave your hair looking, feeling and smelling clean and fresh.
The Schwarzkopf got2b Fresh It Up Extra Fresh Dry Shampoo is the perfect choice thanks to its ability to clean and refresh oily roots instantly, without leaving any of that pesky white residue. It also has an amazing tropical scent that will last all day, so nobody will know your sweaty little secret. It also comes in two other variants to suit your needs – Schwarzkopf got2b Fresh It Up Brown Dry Shampoo for brunettes and Schwarzkopf got2b Fresh It Up Volume Dry Shampoo for an extra volume boost.
Soak up the sweat
To hide your oily post-gym hair, simply spray the Schwarzkopf got2b Fresh It Up Extra Fresh Dry Shampoo in all damp patches of your hair. Leave it to soak in for around 20 seconds, then gently massage the dry shampoo into your scalp.
To give your hair even more of a volume boost, try the Schwarzkopf got2b Fresh It Up Volume Dry Shampoo. Spray the product into the hair, flip your hair over and use your hair dryer to blast your roots. Flip back up and voila! Bounce, body and no more sweaty hair.
Choose the right gym hairstyle
A good hairstyle that will keep your hair firmly in place during your workout is key to avoiding the dreaded ‘sweat slick’. A great option for longer hair is the ponytail plait. Simply pull your hair back into a tight ponytail, and secure with an elastic. Next, plait the ponytail hair and secure it again at the end of the plait. Done!
Got shorter stands? Bobby pins are going to be your best friend, if they’re aren’t already. One of the easiest ways to keep short hair out of your face is to braid it into a headband braid and secure it with bobby pins.
